is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to as

in schools. it demonstrates the fact that even in a secular environment, the spiritual is often present. in 1787 at the continental could congress -- at the continental congress, the group reached an impasse when benjamin franklin spoke. and he said "gentlemen, i am an old man. but i have lived long enough to know that if a sparrow cannot fall without god knowing it, that an empire or a republican-- a republic cannot rise without his help." and franklin suggested that the group should pray. i think it is an example of bringing the spiritual into a secular environment. many of us feel that the work of the spiritual is that of the minister. and if i were only an ordained clergy person, i could certainly inject some spirituality into my workplace, my work environment. but it's more of a secular environment. i would challenge that presupposition. i think it is critically important to remember that 90% of the life of jesus was spent in a secular occupation. he was a carpenter. only three years in what we would consider the priest, prophet ministry and outreach. 75% of our biblical heroes and

again setting the standard for exceptional livable urban environments. i don't know if standing here today is hard to conceive that san francisco is the urban environment here on the west coast. one reason it's hard to conceive how dense it is is because san francisco is ahead of the curve of making it a transit system. we have a simple subway to follow. san francisco is going to continue to lead the way forward both on transportation and on sustainable urban environments. without question we are going to see these forward looking transit projects continue to propel the economics projects of the city and it's live ability and vitality. what we are seeing here at 350 mission, that represents an important milestone in the fulfillment of that transit center vision. as most of you know, kilroy has been the most active investor in san francisco these days and bay area over the last few years and we've done so because we believe in this city and we've also done so because we have immense confidence in mayor lee. it's no coincidence that under mayor lee and his administration that we've see
